“‘A Tale of Two Christmases’ celebrates the differences in culture between the North American Christmas as well as Christmas in the Caribbean,” said UCCI music director Glen Inanga. “Music is a universal art and an international language. Through music, we’re able to promote the principles of good will as well as harmony and musical fellowship amongst so many different people.”
